In the case of entrepreneurial siblings Tanner Moussa and Mackenzie Lewis, design is a long-lasting family affair.
“Our grandfather built his career on the wholesale side of the industry, and our father founded Arteriors,” Moussa says, “so we’ve been completely immersed our entire lives.” Carrying on the legacy as furniture designers, the duo channeled a lifetime of know-how into launching Dallas-based MOUS this fall.
“We knew we wanted to create furniture, and something that was artful, intricately detailed and, above all, functional,” Lewis says. “Our debut Narrative Arc collection includes 29 dramatic and organic silhouettes of case goods, upholstery and ceramics.”
At their 12,000-square-foot location encompassing a showroom, offices and warehouse, “we are always surrounded by our pieces,” Lewis adds. “In renovating the space, we wanted to make sure that guests can easily view and experience the collection. It’s quite the creative haven.” Each design embodies a unique shape, mix of materials and layers of detail, blending modern beauty with functionality.
